Mrs. Denaburg hosts Delphian Review Club
Posted: Friday, November 20, 2009 8:01 pm
The Delphian Review Club met recently in the home of Laura Denaburg. Sixteen members answered roll call with the name of their favorite news anchor or morning show host.
Chaplain Maggie Vaughan shared a patriotic thought for the day and ended it by urging everyone to always take time to say “thank you” to veterans, both past and present.
Following a brief business meeting, Glenda Chrisp gave a review of Barbara Walters’ memoir, “Audition.” She said Ms. Walters’ perception of the world was formed at a very early age when her father owned a nightclub. It made here aware of the ups and downs, insecurities and tragedies that can occur in life when someone is willing to take great risks.
“Financial responsibility for her family, fear, love-all played a large part in the choices she made as she grew up: the friendships she developed, the relationships she had, the marriages she tried to make work. Ultimately, thanks to her drive, combined with a decent amount of luck, she began a career in television,” Mrs. Chrisp said.
Ms. Walters has since spent more than 40 years interviewing heads of state, world leaders, movie stars, criminals, murderers, inspirational figures and celebrities of all kinds.
After the program, a choice of caramel pie or pumpkin roll with hot apple cider was offered by the hostess and Martha Clendenin, who assisted in serving in the absence of Vicki Blanton, co-hostess.
